Pierre Dørge & New Jungle Orchestra “Ubi Zaa” Featuring Kirk Knuffke (SCCD 31819)

SCCD 31819 Pierre Dørge & New Jungle Orchestra “Ubi Zaa”
Featuring Kirk Knuffke

Danish avant-garde, modern jazz guitarist/composer and most famously leader of “one of Europe’s most sophisticated bands” (Norman Weinstein) has always prided himself on the longevity (since 1980) of his constantly active New Jungle Orchestra.

On this new live recording Dørge features his favourite American cornetist Kirk Knuffke and writes music with Kirk’s sound in mind. With the help of engaging audience in Copenhagen NJO delivers one amazing concert here.
